Making Architecture provides an up-to-date account of the work of John McAslan + Partners, one of Britain’s most respected architectural practices, and analyzes the culture of a studio that has made a remarkable contribution to architecture, place-making, and the lives of individuals for four decades.
A series of thematic chapters includes fully illustrated descriptionsof many recent and ongoing international projects, from Central and Waterloo stations in Sydney and ten new stations for Delhi Metro to the transformation of King’s Cross station in London; from the sensitive restoration of the Modern Movement De La Warr Pavilion in the UK tothe new Doha Mosque and Msheireb Museums in Qatar. It also includes the pioneering initiatives for which the McAslan studio has become well known and that underline the practice’s humanity: the urgent restoration of the Iron Market in Port-au-Prince, Haiti, after the devastating earthquake in 2010; the Hidden Homelessness initiative, begun in 2017; the N17 project that provided a pop-up design studio in Tottenham, London, with the aim of inspiring young people to become engaged in the regeneration of their community; and many others.
Edited by Chris Foges, with a foreword by Kenneth Frampton andan introduction by Alan Powers, and with contributions by architectural specialists, this beautifully designed book offers the key to understanding the development and philosophy of one of the world’s most socially engaged architectural practices.
